Re: Boomerang sampler
Sort of. You can set several levels of feedback for each loop, but
you can't change them on the fly. So, when the loop is open for
overdubs it decays, and when it is holding feedback = 100%. To do a
fade, you can open the loop but not overdub anything and over time it
will fade out.
There is a nice little volume roller, if it's just that you want it
The Boomerang seems to have lost all its cachet. I like them -- for
me, they have the best looping interface yet designed. But it seems
like the Jammen and RC-whatevers are going to kill them unless
there's a Boomerang 2 in the works. Used prices look to be around
$300. Some folks didn't like the audio quality, but I never much
noticed although it can be a little fussy to set levels.
You can also use it as a latching delay, like a PCM42, RDS/PDS/
Echotron-whatever, and Echoplex. Since that's the way I normally
"loop," Boomerangs are very appealing to me. (Which is why I'm
getting a Maneco, but that's another story -- getting one of those
means having a kind of squidgy-feeling money transfer through Western
Union. But hopefully he'll get his money tomorrow!) If the DD-20
would do that, it would *kill*, but I as far as I can tell it doesn't.
But I still think, for looping, that you can't beat Boomerangs for
the price. The Digitech, RC-50, and Headrush have just never done it
for me. Well, except for the DD-20 maybe. But that's my opinion --
there are others.
